Endodontic treatment Orange County



Do I need a root canal – Orange County, California?

Endodontics treatment is a type of treatment used to treat dying or inflamed nerves, cracked, or even to treat a dead tooth. Endodontic Therapy can also be used to re-treat a failed root canal therapy. In most cases, it can be used to get rid of the nerves of the teeth. The final decision in getting treatment relies on yours alone, but we can help you after one of our experts has listened to your concern and examined your condition thoroughly.

A Root Canal Procedure normally takes two visits to complete. On the second visit, the Patient and the Dentist gets to see how the treatment has progressed, and whether the patient needs an additional appointment. In some cases, a permanent filling can be completed on the very first visit. These cases have a faster recovery time compared to patients having more than two visits.

Early Symptoms that Could Require a Root Canal

What Your Dentist May Ask about the Symptoms

  • Location of pain/swelling
  • Duration of pain
